| dipintheriverstyx chapter 13 . 1/9
I know it's been like three years
But this story is actually very well written and I like it a helluva lot
I'm always on my toes
Not sure what everyone thinks
NEVER sure about what's going to happen
It's just really good
And I hope that you'll continue this!

I really like this story and I think that leaving some things as a mystery to discover as we read is fine. Otherwise, what's the point of reading if you know everything upfront? I did feel like I was starting in the middle of the story when I read the first chapter. Maybe some reorganization would fix that. You could start with the description and history of the castle instead of putting it in the middle of introducing a new character, and then go on to say how she's currently cleaning up after exterminating daemons. Since there was a lot of information and new characters it was a little confusing to read. I'm not sure that it was really the structure of the first chapter or if I just wasn't in the right frame of mind to concentrate when I first read it because it made a lot more sense once I went back read it again. But that could also be because I had gotten to know the characters and what's going on in the story. It's hard to tell.

It's me again xD I just realized I worded myself incorrectly in my review, so I just wanted to correct it. I meant to say that if you tried to withhold more information than you do now, I would get frustrated xD

It's me, Lady Sakura of the Uchihas. Reading your original stories was definitely a great idea! I've read this, and "A Touch of Sight" and I've really liked them both! Can't wait for a new chapter here :) btw, I don't think you give too much information, if you did, I would get frustrated, a lot xD

That group of yours doesn't know shit. (No offense meant, honest). The mystery of the characters is what keeps the story so damn intriguing. I love Noah and Mason, I think they're very fastly becoming two of my favorite characters. Also. Becareful of plagerizers, you're that good. Although... I AM dying to know what's up:D

Nonono! Don't give us everything at once! The mystery keeps me coming back, at least that's how i see it... Although a new chapter right around now would be pretty great. :)

Hello _ Happy New Year to you !
I just discovered this story of yours. A different genre. What I like is the way you unfold your stories and I strongly disagree with the advice you were given. No way should you give everything to the reader right at the beginning, actually never give the reader everything. Let him/her do his job as a reader. This is what I like, questions, hypothesis, as if I were creating a parallel plot and then when I read the next chapter, the suspense is there. It keeps the story move on. Eventhough a plot has rules to abide by, your writing style is unique and this is what interests me as a reader, apart from the plot. I like the equilibrium between description, action and dialogues. I like sensorial description, it is really nice when you can visualize a scene, it is vivid. As usual, I read the last chapter and read backwards, back up to the moment when I have to read from the first one. This is how I get into a story. I am looking for the clues and it is so fun to rediscover, to find out new details.
So I hope you will keep to your own style and keep writing your stories here too.

awesome story! i'm loving your brain. it's a real unique story with a real unique plot and reads like a published urban fantasy book - better, in fact, than a lot of the published ones i've read.
and the idea of there being apartments in a castle is so funny, to me. :D

I'm loving how this story is winding itself out. Where I usually do like having small details spelled out, I don't really mind this at all. It's exciting like getting a piece of one of the several puzzles you've scattered about.
And honestly speaking, I try to stay away from unfinished stories because I'm impatient and the anticipation kills me. So I hope you're happy. You've got my blood on your hands (figuratively of course).
All in all, keep up the great work :)

So I've finally finished what you have up so far and I do like it. There was enough action with the hound to tide through the more tedious pieces. I don't understand her not killing sentinent creature buisness, so as a Guardian she's never come across such unsavory beings? If they are so bad why not just get rid of them for good? It's probably the brute in me that just wants bloodshed, I'm kind of sucker for that.
Mason's anger is, like I said a little predictable and at least he was able to see reason and see that it was in incredibly poor taste to let the wards go.
anyhow this is only the 3rd story I've reviewed so I hope that my reviews were helpful. I look forward to the next installment and I hope that you didnt forget about this

so ethan is going back to his invisible self, hearing him complain about walking up stairs was hilarious. He's still my favorite character.
There's plenty of mystery with Uriah still, with being part of the fair folk there's definitely so much you could do with his character. a lot to pull from the myths and legends about them.
I'm intrigued about Izzy's family now. If her father didn't have a mother that means he could a fallen angel? that'd be cool. Her character didn't irk me so much, probably because she seemed to be more in the moment and present.
Not entirely sure why Mason let the Hound out. Yes it may be that it is only hunting Uriah but that doesnt mean it wont stop and hurt the others. That just seemed very out of character for the usually reserved studious one. And the fact that so many people live in the building it was just very rash. At least Noah was able to be semi level headed.
| wittylass13 chapter 11 . 9/20/2011
This seemed like a little bit of filler before something good happens. Crotchety Ethan is pretty hilarious and I like all his old fashioned curses, also love Brogan the leprechaun.
What I don't love is the delayed feelings talk that Noah and Izzy have. Really bro? You've loved her for 4 years and only make a move when the devastatingly handsome mysterious man tries. I don't really enjoy love triangles and this one doesn't have an interesting spin on it. It's either the best friend or the mysterious man with a dark past. I mean don't get me wrong I really do like your story its just that I wish there were more action type of sequences instead of Izzy being whisked around all confused about her feelings and such
| wittylass13 chapter 10 . 9/20/2011
I must say this is one of your more well written one, the dialogue and overall pace just flowed better. There wasnt as many awkward segues or anything so props to you. Izzy's revelation that maybe she should be more on top of things was something that was seriously lacking in previous chapters. I understand that something happened that this job was suddenly thrust upon her, but shes been a guardian for 4 years now I would think that she would have been a little better at adapting and understanding certain situations. Just her utter lack of knowledge is kind of irksome. At least she has Mason to help her with research but she should at least be trying to develop her skills more to tackle bigger problems. The thought of a full blown shield on the house didn't occur to her before Ethan mentioned it?
Anyhow the scene with Uriah is pretty awesome. Izzy's character seems to progress more here in this inbetween world. Noah's jealousy is predictable but there needs to either be a talk between them to, the issue just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
| wittylass13 chapter 9 . 9/20/2011
Ahh this is my favorite chapter so far. Because it showcases my two favorite characters and Izzy doesn't irritate me as much. Though I still am wondering what her deal is with Uriah, she's quite rude. And it seems logical about what he asks her about being a Guardian for a big city like Chicago since she can't even handle that little wolf. Please explain the whole back story with that, seems like a lot of responsbility that she doesn't seem to know enough about.
The mug was a nice touch, I like all the celtic references much better than the standard vampires that I'm used to read about. Finally, finally we find out what Uriah is and what Ethan looks like. Overall I enjoyed this chapter.
